These Giant Crocheted Food Hats Are Everything


Because, who doesn’t want to be as warm and as stylish as possible this winter? Phil Ferguson, aka ChiliPhilly, does. So he’s created several crocheted hats, designed to look like he’s wearing giant food items on his head.

The hats are crocheted by Phil, without a pre-existing pattern. Although, the hats are one-ups and not available for sale, Phil admits that he hasn’t even worn one out in public. For one, he admits that he doesn’t want them to get ruined. Another reason, perhaps, is the general public not quite being ready for a giant pizza or hot dog-head walking around.

Check out a few of Phil’s food heads below, with more to be found at Instagram.

The Pickle Dog Is As Wonderful As It Sounds


This is the Pickle Dog. It’s a hot dog inside a pickle, then battered and deep-fried like your average corn dog.

Discovered by Jeff Miller and Meg Strouse of Thrillist during their trip to the OC County Fair, the franken-pickle is only part of what’s to be expected at the yearly event. And, it’s usually a lot of deep-fried things that shouldn’t be and guzinda foods such as this one.
